Message from the Principal

It was wonderful to see such a great gathering of school community members at the ANZAC march on Friday. Our students are to be commended for their participation in, and reverence throughout the Commemorative Service. 

Congratulations to a number of our school members for Arts and Drama achievements: Harin Ravendran recently achieved the highest pass in Queensland for Drama and Performance examinations. Harin has been invited to perform at the Barbara Sisley Awards, held at Parliament House, later this term. Congratulations, too, to Grace Quinn-Hennesy and Mrs Gunilla Myren. Grace has been chosen to sing with Opera Queensland (Junior) and Mrs Myren has been chosen to sing with Opera Queensland (Senior).

The Australian Catholic magazine is inviting submissions for ‘Everyday Australians with stories that matter’.  Interested students are asked to write a story on someone inspiring in your community for the 2014 Young Journalist Award. You could get published and win cash and great prizes for you and your school. There is a Junior (Year 5 and 6) and Intermediate (Year 7, 8 and 9) section.

Does your child know someone with a story to share? By doing some research, conducting an interview, and writing a story they can help make a difference. Winning stories will be published in the Spring edition of Australian Catholics. For more information, go to:
